1) Sam's does not accept American Express or Visa credit issued by a major TARP bank. However, they do accept Visa debit from a moderately large TARP bank, and FSA Express/EBT/Visa debit issued by a state welfare agency.

2) While walking by the crowd as the store opened , I over hearing the remarks of a stout Heffer of the 'we president now' variety that, "they threatening Obama's rule cause they's trying to take away our free health care.

I have to wonder just exactly who that erudite and well spoken citizen thinks "they" are?

There is your answer. The source of the card does not matter. The accept debit, but not credit.

How... do they even know that? I assumed (wrong, I supposed) that Visa acted as an intermediary between vendors and card issuers. How would any vendor know which bank a Visa was issued from?

I priced some things (formula stood out) and found that Walmart had the same items in smaller packages at a lower unit price. Sam's may have some other items as loss-leaders, or stuff that you just do not find at Walmart, but my brief research discouraged me from investigating much more.

I didn't stalk her, though I should have for a much more concise an in depth field report. I was in a hurry, and she hung back doing the head gyrations and hand flapping thing that many people of such great learning and perspicacity as she does when engaging in political discourse.

They don't take any Visa credit, TARP or not.

I just go there mainly to restock the office with water, K-cups, and sodas since it is right down the road from work. The meat department isn't terrible, have bought stuff from there for employee cookouts before.

bingo... flash my business member card and get in bright and early
walk into a empty sams club and buy my bulk toilet paper in peace

the visa credit card thing irritates me... I cant use my business card to pay for busines supplies

ETA: as mentioned not everything is a good deal... I did the math and I save enough on toilet paper and paper towels and stuff like that to pay the yearly member fee

I don't take time to look up spellings of technical agriculture terms used here primarily as slang , hell, I barely even type. First time I've probably wrote it too.

It reads the same, and I honestly can't say I've ever seen the word in print, not being a rancher and all. I'll ask the cattleman who leases pasture from me how he spells it next time I see him. He's just a hick worth a few million but probably retains it in memory from all of the auction inventories he's read.



I should just keep Word open and draft there to keep up with the standards of the elite of Arfcom.

I don't take time to look up spellings of technical agriculture terms used here primarily as slang , hell, I barely even type. First time I've probably wrote it too.

It reads the same, and I honestly can't say I've ever seen the word in print, not being a rancher and all. I'll ask the cattleman who leases pasture from me how he spells it next time I see him. He's just a hick worth a few million but probably retains it in memory from all of the auction inventories he's read.



I should just keep Word open and draft there to keep up with the standards of the elite of Arfcom.

Yep 13er

2) While walking by the crowd as the store opened , I over hearing the remarks of a stout Heffer of the 'we president now' variety that, "they threatening Obama's rule cause they's trying to take away our free health care.

I have to wonder just exactly who that erudite and well spoken citizen thinks "they" are?

I would of liked to have stood around and heard her continue on with her public policy analysis, but I was in a hurry to get the things I needed for company tonight.

That's all: my quick CSB report from the trenches


Irony.

Oh you too professor?

Appeal to authority much?


Wha?

Given: Everyone with perfect grammar and spelling's opinions should be heavily weighed in consideration for their efficacy.

Then: If they don't meet this standard they should be ridiculed and cast aside as pedestrian and lacking in verity.

Although you make many great points in your criticisms here, and I appreciate many of them as examples of sound reasoning but not always of sound judgenment; that is how you sometimes seem when you attack a commentator that for whatever reason you feel needs belittling.

You are quite accomplished in both respects.

No, it's not that at all.

It's the idea that you ridiculed a woman for nonstandard english asociate with lower to middle class black Americans, while simultaneously demonstrating a nonstandard use of english commonly asociated with middle class white Americans. Then, when called on it, failed to notice your double standard - and instead started making excuses that would apply just as well - if not more so - to the subject of your OP.

Excuse no reasons yeas.

Get off your high horse.

I notice what could be considered a double standard, but I know who I am regardless of regionalisms I pick up where ever I have lived.

And, yes she was black trash and yes I ridiculed her. I ridiculed her white bretheren yesterday.

I am an equal oppertunity offender. You though remarkable at times can just plain come across as prick in your smugness and mission to put everyone in your asigned place.

I don't care in any case.

I gotta go

SAMs is to Walmart, what Costco is to Target.

That's why when Costco opened up about 1/2 a mile from Sams, most decent folk went there. I dropped my Sams membership after standing in line surrounded by ethnic store owners pushing pallet carts full of resell items and waiting as ghetto goblins ran the cash register. I figure if I was paying money to shop, I should not feel like I was in Somalia.

It's a whole different world over at Costco. People are friendly and courteous.

Sam's does take AMEX online.

My bank refuses Sam's online purchases made with a debit card because it shows up as though you are in Wal-Mart (physically) trying to make a purchase without (physically) inputting the PIN (in other words, fraud).

Sam's knows about this 'glitch' in their online system but apparently can't do anything about it.
